Red Giant has released Old/New, a short film created to highlight its visual effects software.
To help demystify the filmmaking process, Red Giant has also released a behind the scenes mini-documentary that walks viewers through their workflow – writing, art direction, filming, editing, colour correction and visual effects.
Directed by Seth Worley the film is narrated by actor/comedian Patton Oswalt, and concerns the story of Drew McHugh, a man who has a penchant for the new. His ruinous obsession with novelty- including new devices, new fashion, new friends and even names - is challenged when he discovers the rustic appeal of old-fashioned things. He quickly becomes obsessed (again) with the reclaimed and well worn, plummeting face-first down the rabbit hole of novelty and nostalgia.
